Information icon Hello, I'm Strike Eagle. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions to Gary Kagelmacher because it did not appear constructive.

July 2014[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. At least one of your recent edits, such as the edit you made to Julian Green, did not appear to be constructive and has been reverted or removed. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, please take some time to familiarise yourself with our policies and guidelines. You can find information about these at the welcome page which also provides further information about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. If you only meant to make some test edits, please use the sandbox for that. Thank you. Walter Görlitz (talk) 01:20, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Information icon Please do not add or change content, as you did to Julian Green, without verifying it by citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. His nationality is listed based on the team he represents at the international level. There's a lengthy discussion of this on the article's talk page. Walter Görlitz (talk) 16:59, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Please see the talk page and stop being disruptive. There is no question that he was born in Germany, but on Wikipedia, football player articles only list the nation that they represent internationally. Walter Görlitz (talk) 17:30, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Your recent editing history shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Everywhere, it is listed that they are American-German. Even the next sentence identifies his dual citizenship. The dude is GERMAN in that he barely speaks English. Everything he does is in German. He's German who happens to play for the USA. HE IS GERMAN!!! There is no way around it. Just like Klinsmann.

Let’s take a look at those articles even more closely. Notice how on the German site that there are often flags in the infobox and there are none in the English site. That’s because we have WP:INFOBOXFLAG on our project. Also, WP:OPENPARA states not to mention the birth place as part of the birth date while that's done on other other projects. So just because another project does something doesn’t mean we have to follow. On English Wikipeidia, we list the national team represented. Johnson is an exception because he represented the senior men’s team of both nations. Walter Görlitz (talk) 17:48, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
And coaches are a different case yet again because a coach doesn't need approval from FIFA to change the nation he is coaching, while a player does. Walter Görlitz (talk) 17:55, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
Do not use profanity on my talk page ever again.
If you think I'm switching rules, take it up with the football project. If you think I'm switching rules, take it up with the next step in conflict resolution. I'll gladly watch the outcome.
Just so you're clear on this;
  1. The football project elects to display the FIFA-recognized nationality of a player
  2. Players must request a change in nationality while managers do not. Players are generally only permitted to represent one nation at the international level while coaches are free to represent multiple nations.
You're not reading the edit notice on my talk page. The communications should all be listed here, not in two locations. Walter Görlitz (talk) 18:09, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Stop icon This is your only warning; if you vandalize Wikipedia again, as you did at Julian Green, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. I've tried to explain how this works and you refuse to discuss. Instead, you use examples of incorrectly listed articles. Read Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Football/Nationality#Nationality to indicate and discuss at WP:FOOTY. Your actions have been reported. Walter Görlitz (talk) 20:31, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
